Mark Turley, 55, was an avid runner with four half-marathons under his belt, when persistent pain in his groin sidelined his fitness regimen.\nAs an employee of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Turley had access to the team\u2019s elite medical staff, including Thomas Sisk, MD, who diagnosed him with stenosis in his lower back and gave him a steroid injection to cope with the nagging pain.\nBut more than a year later, the pain in Turley\u2019s hip and back grew unbearable. He underwent back surgery to relieve his stenosis and was further diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both hips.\nThat\u2019s when his doctor\u2019s referred him to orthopaedic surgeon Brian Klatt, MD, who recommended that Turley undergo a bilateral hip replacement.\nThe simultaneous procedure meant Turley only had to endure one recovery period with minimum increased risk.\nTurley underwent surgery in October 2015 at UPMC Shadyside. Following his procedure, he enrolled in physical therapy at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex and worked alongside Manisha Trivedi, MD, who oversaw his pain management.\n\u201cIt\u2019s so different to be able to do the things you really want to do again without pain. Two years ago, I couldn\u2019t ride a bike. I couldn\u2019t even do yard work. Now, I\u2019m looking forward to it.\u201d\nRead more about Mark’s recovery.
